Zoe Salana on Kimmel

Avatar fans, prepare to get excited!

Zoë Saldana will reprise her role as Neytiri in the next three Avatar movies! (That’s right, THREE new Avatar flicks!)

E! News reports that director James Cameron is going to make the sequels back-to-back-to-back, and that the second Avatar movie will hit theaters in December 2016. A third movie will come in December 2017 and the fourth comes in December 2018.

“Zoë captured every aspect of the character I envisioned, bringing to Neytiri a mix of delicacy, fierceness and incredible physicality. I am beyond pleased they’ll be returning with us to Pandora,” the director said.

But we won’t have to wait that long to see Zoe in another pic. The 35-year-old newlywed actress next appears in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy and was recently cast in NBC’s Rosemary’s Baby miniseries. She also will likely reprise her role as communications director Nyota Uhura in the next Star Trek movie, which is pegged for a 2016 release.

Whew! She’s busy!
